The characters are ok. It is easy to see why they are the way they are. Our H doesn't date or sleep around at all...he's a stand up guy, who devotes a lot of time to his sister and her son (she got pregnant at 16 and now has a 4 year old son). Her situation is what made him stop sleeping around. He also had a break up with is first girlfriend/love which adds to his hesitancy to jump into anything romantic. Our h is just starting out a new University to get away from her father (this is not a spoiler, you learn this very early on, and he is pretty much the foundation upon which her no a$$hole rule was built). She also has one bad experience with an ex boyfriend. All in all, its clear why they are a bit reluctant, but the story line doesn't really grab you.
There are funny elements, with the initial meeting really being the funniest part in the book. The whole brother enrolling in her college and her friend just deciding to transfer to her school bothered me for some reason. Perhaps it just seemed to easy, but then again, wherever this i set, maybe it is that easy. Even the eventual scene with her father (again, not a spoiler, you know its coming) is just anticlimactic. It was just an ok read. I skimmed a bit throughout. The "steamy" scenes are PG at best. I probably won't read anything else in the series.
Lucas Jensen is twenty two years old and a sophomore in college only because he delayed going to school and instead helped his sister and parents for that matter with his nephew Noah. Lucas freely admits he was your typical manwhore until his little sister got pregnant at sixteen and dropped like a bad habit before the baby was even born. Lucas saw how devastated his sister Ava was and vowed then he would never treat women like that again. Lucas has not even dated anyone on campus since the girls there haven't interested him enough but when he meets his new neighbor his whole philosophy changes. Lucas is immediately drawn to this feisty girl that seems to hate him on site but he is determined to get past that tough girl act.
Lucas and Andie have numerous ups and downs with the missed connections and angst that I expect in a NA romance. I really enjoyed this first book and will be on the look out for book two.
I haven’t been in a big New Adult mood in a while, but when I saw the title of this book I had to give it a go – even if that required sacrificing a few hours of sleep to do so. And I’m glad I did. The No A**hole Rule has the requisite amount of angst one tends to find in a New Adult romance, but the reason behind Andie’s issues aren’t the typical insecurities young women her age tend to have. In fact, the reason why Andie is so cut-off from the world is pretty horrific in my opinion, both because of what happened to her and who was responsible for it. Add to that Lucas, an admitted reformed player, and the book proved to be an enjoyable read for me.
While we get the drama, angst, and romance of a New Adult romance, Ms. Erin sets out to show that first impressions can be overcome and doing so can be well worth the effort. To be fair to Andie, Lucas did make an awful first impression. Yes, we find out afterwards that he wasn’t being the a**hole she thought he was as he was actually dealing with a family issue at the time, but her first impression of him seemed spot-on and their subsequent interactions didn’t do anything to disprove it. When Andie finally gets a chance to see that she was wrong about Lucas and gives friendship a chance – they will be neighbors for at least the next three years – they find out that have a lot in common. Gotta love a girl who can kick EVERY guys’ butt in video games. Because of her history, it takes Andie a long time to see the potential for more with Lucas. Fortunately, Andie’s brother Dax is there to encourage her and give Lucas advice without spilling her secrets. Thankfully Lucas actually listens to Dax and gets his own sister’s advice and takes it slow with Andie. This makes for an enjoyable slow-building of their romance, and when they finally do take that next step, well it’s both sweet and sexy.
Where the author took The No A**hole Rule that I elevated above the typical New Adult read for me was the conflict between Andie and her father. Honestly as I got farther and farther into the book, I began to think the author wasn’t going to play that card after all. And them BAM! she went there and she did it spectacularly. While I hated that Andie went through what she did, when she’s confronted by her father it gives total credence to every flinch, jerk, shut down, and tensed muscle that Andie experienced in the book. As bad as it was to watch, it added to the realism of Andie’s character – and gave her the kick in the rear she needed to admit her feelings for Lucas. I really liked Andie and Lucas’s friends and family and am looking forward to Lucas’s sister and Andie’s brother story play out. The No A**hole Rule was a great start for the Rule series and I look forward to reading The No Bad Boy Rule.

But it turns out Lucas is really quite the prince. (Forget book boyfriend, every girl needs to find a boy like him in life!) A reformed teenage manwhore, Lucas, 22, hasn’t had sex in four years. Yes 4! (Refreshing— you don’t find that too often in contemporary romance). It seems that Lucas has had his own family issues that have made him reevaluate relationships, and until Andi he hasn’t been interested in them.
Andi lacks experience with trustworthy boys. Lucas lacks experience with committed girlfriends. So how does that all turn out?...Well, Lucas is a total prince. (I said that already didn’t I?) Can’t really say it enough. Aside from one little overreaction (that honesty felt out of character for Lucas) he’s the doll of the book. Andi on the other hand…well largely she’s likeable, taking into account all that she’s been through. She is quick to jump to misunderstandings though, but thankfully she has a great support system of characters who make up the supporting roles of the story.
Speaking of the supporting characters, they definitely add to the story and seem to set the stage for future books. I’m definitely interested in Dax’s story, especially with the person he’s hinted to be with. Family, friends, and making a serious relationship work are all themes of the story.
Advanced copy for blog tour had some grammatical issues although that may have just been an uncorrected proof. Despite having to re-read some sentences, it was still an enjoyable new adult read. Told via Andi and Lucas’s alternating first person POV, if you enjoy coming of age romances that focuses on the characters and the couple as they make their journey and grow, then you’ll want to check this one out.
Moving day arrives and Andie has one rule that she lives by, No A**holes. She has been hurt to many times in the past to consider giving a guy the time of day. When he door to her apartment building is slammed in her face, she is yet again faced with an a$$hole, a gorgeous one at that. Andie has five years left of school and she hopes that there will be no a$$holes who stand in her way. But if her past has anything to say about, that is not going to happen. When she meets her gorgeous door neighbor she realizes that he is the one who slammed the door in her face the day she moved in. Just looking at him leaves her speechless. But when she needs directions to her first class of he day on her first day, she has no choice but to ask for his help.
Lucas Jensen has just gotten a glimpse of his new neighbor and damn if he isn't blown away by the little firecracker that she is. He likes how feisty, head strong, and competitive she is and the fact that she can hold her own is a huge turn on. When he finds that they have a class together a few mornings a week, he sees his chance to get to know her better. What he finds and learns about Andie, makes him want to get closer and closer to her. This is a first for Lucas. He has not been in a relationship for along time and even then it was more like constant one night stands. But it was what worked to get him through a tough time in his life.
Lucas and Andie find themselves sending more and more time together and slowly Lucas finds a way in, through those huge walls that Andie has erected around herself. What starts out as a friendship slowly grows into so much more, but when Daddy comes a knocking, will Andie be strong enough to keep him away or will she be left fighting to survive? Will Lucas be able to prove to her that her no a**hole rule does not apply to him, that he is there for the long haul, that she is it for him? Can they help one another overcome the demons of their past and fight for the future that they both so desperately want? Grab your copy of this angsty, gritty, awesome story of heartache, healing and forever's.
